Blackcleugh Farm is situated about 6 miles from the town of Annan and only a 10 minute drive to the A74 (M). The property occupies an elevated site and benefits from views over the surrounding countryside. Blackcleugh Farm was a highly productive stock rearing and feeding farm at one time. It has, through circumstances, been almost abandoned and the holding would afford any purchaser the opportunity to bring the land and indeed the farm back to its previous productive status.
The property benefits from a traditional farmhouse and steading, although both are in need of remedial works and refurbishment. The farm has enormous sporting potential, given that the Redstones Wood is included in the sale.
Blackcleugh is situated on the outskirts of the village of Eaglesfield, which lies about 6 miles from Annan. Eaglesfield benefits from a primary school, Post Office & village shop and a local inn. The property is well placed to access all major road links for those commuting both North and South. The busy town of Annan provides a wider range of essential and professional services, along with a thriving High Street with primary and secondary schooling available. Nearby Dumfries offers further education choices within the Crichton University Campus.
This traditional farmhouse occupies an elevated site and offers picturesque open views over the surrounding countryside. The farmhouse is of traditional brick-built construction under a slated roof, set over two floors. The farmhouse has been uninhabited for some time and requires full refurbishment.
Garden grounds to the front of the property with a hardstanding area to the rear of the farmhouse leading to parts of the steading buildings.
THE FARM STEADING
The agricultural steading comprises of a traditional range of barns & byres, along with some portal structures. The buildings require some remedial works but are fit to overwinter livestock. An overview of the steading is contained within these particulars.
Blackcleugh extends in total to about 175.48 acres (71.01Ha), including the areas occupied by the dwelling house, steading, yards, access roads, Redstone wood, etc. The land is contained within specific field enclosures and is all down to grass for grazing. It should be noted that the land has been under grazed for some time and there is an encroachment of rashes to some of the field parcels. However, this is a recent management problem and the land, in the past, has been highly productive and we are informed that Blackcleugh was self-sufficient in home-grown forage. An Aerial photograph from three years ago is included in these particulars.
To the immediate south of Blackcleugh farmhouse is about 22.5 acres of mixed amenity woodland with roadside access.
